Our class composed of "both accelerated and four year
students decided to comply with war-time regulations by pre-
senting the annual yearbook in a form which used the minimum
amount of materials needed much more by our boys on the Euro-
pean and the Asiatic Fronts.
This Saxifrage is limited in number to the members of ,this
class, one to the President's office, one to the college lib-
rary, and one to the Alumni Association.
If in future years, our book is compared to those of pre-
war and post-war days, let it not be forgotten that this Sax-
ifrage was published under wartime restrictions by the earnest
endeavors of the "Patriots of f 45".
This book is the symbol of our college days.
We also serve.

-.sc'and poise while providing the college with excellent entortaii-
lnont. "The Woman in the Freight Car" was presented at the anmr*l
Dramatic Club assembly. Under the direction of its president and
faculty' adviser, Mrs. John Hcaley, this unusual drama was a groat ^

Mr. Arthur Harrington
The Student Cooperative Association is governed by the Student
Cooperative Council. This Council acts for the entire student body
in regulating the matters which pertain to student life and which are
not under the jurisdiction of the faculty.
Through the Council a certain percentage of the college fund is
allotted to the different organizations. This method of distribution
has proved to be very profitable for the college as a v/holo and for
the individual organizations.
Carlton Smith, world renowned traveler and lecturer, was pres-
ented under the auspices of the Council.
Tha Glee Club

The Glee Club as a leading organization on campus has an ex-
cellent reputation. With Miss Curry as its director, it has pro-
vided entertainment to the college and to the public.
This club helps its members develop a greater love for music,
to gain experience in understanding music, and to enjoy the
pleasure of singing in a large group.
The program this year included a concert given April 12.
The Glee Club also assisted the Dramatic Club at the Christmas
The Ensemble is composed of members from the Glee Club.
Under the direction of Miss Curry, the popularity of this group
continued at its high standard.
This organization gave presentations to private societies
and to the public.
It has provided enjoyable entertainment throughout the year*
Editor -in -Chief
The Stick, the campus newspaper, is written, edited, and
printed by the students of F.T.C. The various activities on
campus, news, talents, and original ideas are published in this
paper. Due to the paper shortage and printing difficulties
editions of the Stick were limited. This paper presented news,
editorials, and current features of interest to our alumni in
service as well as thode of us on campus.
THE ART CLUB
So crctary-Trca surer
Through lecture and demonstrations by guest speakers, members
of this organization have been given the opportunity to appreciate
and understand art more thoroughly. The Art Club also offers its
members the opportunity of cxprcs r ing their creative ability by
using such mediums as mctalcraft, oils, stenciling, and water colors.
Outstanding speakers of the year were Dorothy Hills George of
the Vesper George School; Mr. Louis Carpcnticr, a soap sculptor and
v/oodcarvcr; and Ernie Zwibruick.
Mary Louise Dohcrty
The W. A. A. offers to all women students the opportunity of
participating in hockey, basketball, volley ball, hiking, tennis,
badminton, ping-pong, archery, soccer and soft ball. Some high-
lights of this season wore inter-class and color games, sport rallys
at the brook, sport nights in the Administration building. Du^ to
transport:- tion difficulties there was little contact with other
colleges. F. T. C. won the basketball tournament at Clark University
in V/orccster. Representatives were sent to the State Teachers College
conference held at Bridgcwatcr.
Keen spirit and competition made this a most enjoyable and
Volley ball was our most popular indoor sport. It provided a
great deal of fun for its players as well as its audience. Inter-
class end color games climaxed the season. Millie Bcrlo capably
led this sport.
Our favorite fall sport was hockey which meant braving the
cold. It provided opportunity for one to show her skill and tech-
nique. Training didn't even keep us from going out. Hockey was
led by enthusiastic Lucy Zyznicwska. Very evenly matched class
and color teams aroused an atmosphere of excitement and interest.
The alumnae gome was the highlight of the season.
Basketball is a game of accuracy and skill. This sport was
excellently 'lod by Doris March, v/ho was the outstanding sport star
of the year. Inter- school competitive games made up the main cal-
mdar. Victory over Jlark Univcrsi ty at Worcester v/as one of the
ghlights of the sea son.
SOCCER - SOFTBALL
There was little of either sport this
layed woro ably led by Pris Morlcy.
■ear. The few games
Crowds galore gathered around the court where keen competition
between classes and individuals was seen. This sport was remark-
ably handled by Barby Lav in.
There was marvellous interest and enthusiasm for this sport.
Bouquets are due to our leader Sally O'Connor.
This sport continued oh even though handicapped by the inco n-
vcnicnccs of transportation. Dot Jr.nda led the ''water clogs".
Here, there, and almost everywhere the girls followed their
able leader Charlotte Drury.
CLASS HISTORY - REMEMBER WHEN
One bright and early September morn a group of wide-eyed and just
scared new students of F.T.C. mot in Palmer and Miller Hall re spec t-
ivcly to be introduced to college life. Orientation was the official
title Saturday and Sunday we wandered through numerous tunnels, had
a dance to meet each other and upperclassmcn, getting a taste of the
fun and good fellowship that is T.C.
However, the next two weeks came in the form of torture otherwise
known as "Initiation". In the blazing sun we " Congaed" around the
tennis courts, drilled and marched to the satisfaction of the upper-
classmen, and more than one student went to classes with her hair in
numerous pigtails or wearing mismated socks. Woe to the freshman who
appeared without that badge of distinction — -the green bow or necktie J
Time passed in a whirl of studies, Freshman Reception, the Christ-
mas Dance, and our men leaving in ones and twos for you know where,
Ernie Richardson, Copie Hague and Dave McNamara were among the fellows
Before we knew it, June had appeared and we were madly making
hoops of red, v/hite and blue for the high and mighty seniors.
We now had our decisions to make to accelerate or not to accel-
erate that was the question. Those of us who decided to complete
our course in three years and three summers returned late in June for
more classes. Although our mornings were taken up with studies, af-
ternoons were free for tennis, the Spa, or swimming at Whalom.
Back to school and the noble sophomore class returned to F.T.C.
Wo began taking education courses and were soon divided into two
camps "Elementary" and "Junior High :; . The shadow of teaching loomed
nearer and nearer.
However, we managed to sonsole ourselves with dances* Of course,

Out of classes and into summer school. Six weeks. of trying to
concentrate on navigation, geography or literature then afternoons
of loafing with a little studying thrown in on the side.
We started our combined Junior-Senior year in a rather unique ,z
way we were now student teachers. It seemed odd to bo addressed
os "Miss" and to be responsible for a group of youngsters. We now
had to be leaders instead of being led. Our world was full of les-
son plans, discipline problems and hov; to get out of school before
five o'clock. We loved vacations and existed for weekends.
Back to school and studio s---it seemed our time was about
equally divided between the library and the Spa.
Wc were all shocked by Dr. Hcrlihy's dcath< but tried to carry
on as he would have wished.
Suddenly June was on us. Wc were all busy working on the Sax,
Class Day or Graduation. Although a 'few of us will graduate in June,
the majority will return for summer school.
August will see the end of our college days but hero's hoping
wo can got together every so often for one of our "gripe" scsrions
that arc so much fun.
